10.2 upgrade freeze on boot
I've been using Mandrake 10.1 for a while now, but went for the 10.2 update and broke my machine. The install went through without any problems at all. The machine is an IBM desktop, but there's nothing unusual about it.
1) If I boot into the default Linux, it gets as far as "Detected IBM BIOS, enabling APM" and then freezes dead. Not even a caps-lock light will respond, and I have to power off/on. I've added noapm to the end of the boot string, but to no avail.
2) If I boot into linux-failsafe, it goes fine until it hits the "Loading ALSA" stage, at which point it again freezes dead.
3) If I boot into the old kernel, it finishes the boot, and gets to the command line, but the network won't work (some scio error) and X can't find any screens. But the data is all ok, and the command line seems to be working ok.
I've tried every command line I know of - noapm, nousb, ide-nodma etc, unplugged all the peripherals, and so on, but it just hangs at the same point, every time.
Any ideas anyone?
